Join our signature event, the Hoot & Howl

On one special night, just the adults get to come out and play at Silicon Valley’s must-attend social event of the season, benefiting Happy Hollow Park & Zoo. Our 7th Annual Hoot & Howl was held on Saturday September 9th when over 750 Happy Hollow supporters came out to eat, drink, dance, mingle with animal ambassadors and generally have a fabulous time at the best "Party with a Purpose" in Silicon Valley!

Who has not had the dream of sneaking into a zoo or museum after closing and getting to hang out with friends one magical night?  Happy Hollow Foundation designed this un-gala event with that childhood dream in mind. Race a bath tub, climb the stairs to our sake bar on the Redwood Lookout Tower, try your hand at shadow puppetry, and of course get up close with some very intriguing animal ambassadors.  We’ve tucked foodie stations and bars throughout the party venue to make it more fun for groups of any size to play and support without having to be anchored to a table.  We have plenty of lounges and quieter activities for those who prefer to be casual observers. No boring assigned seating here, just partying and relaxation! 

We have built in a lot of fun, but everything ties back to the mission of Happy Hollow (animals, puppetry, play). We hope this concept appeals to your inner child – and your inner philanthropist! Stay tuned for information about our 2018 event.
